LibriVox recording of The Bishop's Secret by Fergus Hume.
Read in English by David Wales

Bishop Pendle is the Church of England bishop in a small fictitious English cathedral town. Several years into his work, he receives a visit from a disreputable-looking visitor. The bishop is much upset. What transpired between them that has so upset the good churchman? And then there is the murder. Fergus Hume was one of the most prolific and most popular of 19th century novelists. "Mr. Hume won a reputation second to none for plot of the stirring, ingenious, misleading, and finally surprising kind, and for working out his plot in vigorous and picturesque English. In "The Bishop's Secret," while there is no falling off in plot and style, there is a welcome and marvelous broadening out as to the cast of characters, representing an unusually wide range of typical men and women. These are not laboriously described by the author, but are made to reveal themselves in action and speech in a way that has, for the reader, all the charm of personal intercourse with living people...."
(Book Preface and david wales)

Subject: Well told and well read!
Thanks to David for a great read.
He made a long story most enjoyable!


Just a very tiny quibble re the pronunciation of the word "row" - as in it used in this phrase:
"pot-house row"; in this context,the word should be pronounced to rhyme with "cow" not "toe"!
